i am 33 and dh and i are ttc

just come on today and i am so sad

we have only been ttc 3 months (i KNOW its no time at all) but with dd it happened so quick. like, days after we decided to ditch the contraception. i was only 28 then though. and i got pg with DS (from prev relationship) when i was 25 by accident very quick too blush

and to top it off i have read a scaremongering article in the sun newspaper this morning about how womens fertility sharply drops after 32

we were TTC 2 years ago but stopped as it was not a good time financially, now i wish we had carried on trying as now it might be too late

please please share your positive stories sad sorry for being a drama queen. but it actually scares me how much i want dc3

try for a year then ask for a day 21 progesterone test. you may just need a little clomid if you have problems.

Dc @ 27 30 31 33(just) 35 37 38 40 and almost 44

Plus 8 m/c (4 before 40 and 4 after 40)

So 7 live births after 30smile

I would say don't despair yet. Although at 28 after my first m/c and heading to 30 I despaired of having a second child. So I know it's hard but it's not long to have been trying, you were just quick with your other conceptionssmile. Good luck and hope it happens soon for you.

I had DD at 35. Took 9 months to conceive with no particular system. 37 now and hoping for DC2 soon!

RubixCube Tue 26-Feb-13 22:10:39

So what im saying is i had problems at a young age.My sis in law had her last baby at 40 with no problens

RubixCube Tue 26-Feb-13 22:08:20

Oh and i was 18 when trying for our 1st and 22 trying for my second

brettgirl2 Tue 26-Feb-13 22:05:35

I had dd1 at 31 and dd2 at 34, pretty unremarkable....

My great grandmother had 10 kids, my grandmother (her 3rd) was born when she was 33.... She therefore had at least 6 possibly 7 kids after the age of 35 shock. Only one set of twins.....

Fertility is personal some people are more fertile later, its all averages.

I got pregnant at 39 totally not planned grin

1 birth control slip up ( no morning after pill for me,too old and smoked and its not over the counter here) but hey Im almost 40,Im sposed to be less fertile, right?

Shes 8 now and totally awsome grin

11 months with my ds,every month i cried when AF arrived and a month with my dd and I'm living proof that you can get pregnant when your on your AF smile

deste Tue 26-Feb-13 21:54:17

Trying for 6 years with DS, 27 years old and the another 8.5 years with DD 36 years old.

mejon Tue 26-Feb-13 21:52:14

Took around 6m to conceive with DD1 when I was 37.
Conceived the first week of trying with DD2 at 42.
You've plenty of time.

RainbowsFriend Tue 26-Feb-13 21:50:30

Oops DC#1 at 37 not 35

RainbowsFriend Tue 26-Feb-13 21:50:08

I had DC#1 at 35 (6 months of TTC following a late miscarriage which messed up my cycles a bit)

And currently 39 and pregnant with (hopefully) DC#2, took 3 months of half hearted TTC

DonderandBlitzen Tue 26-Feb-13 21:42:38

LaQueen Do you mean you had your dd2 at age 33?

DonderandBlitzen Tue 26-Feb-13 21:38:21

Hi. I think people slowly start to get less fertile from age 30, but only slowly. After 35 I believe it quickens up a bit, but still many many people have children after 35 of course. I got preg with dd1 at 32 (first month of ttc) and with dd2 at 35, 3rd month of ttc. My grandmother had my mother at age 43. Jo Brand had her first at 43 and second at 45. I believe this was without fertility treatment.

My DH's aunt had her first at age 40 and went on to have a further two with no problems at all.

duffybeatmetoit Tue 26-Feb-13 20:38:29

I had totally unexpected and unplanned dd 2 months shy of my 45th birthday. Dd very healthy. A friend told her gynae about it and he assumed I'd had fertility treatment as my chances of conceiving naturally were so low. Wasn't able to conceive another child though.

BsshBossh Tue 26-Feb-13 20:34:36

I was two months shy of 38 when I gave birth to DD. It took nearly 8 months to conceive her (actively trying).

LaQueen Tue 26-Feb-13 20:23:05

Had unprotected sex, just once with DH (then DP) when I was 31, and got pregnant, then miscarried 11 weeks later.

Was forbidden by HCPs to get pregnant again, as miscarriage was very nasty, with complications - was warned might never carry a baby past 3 months sad

Was finally given the all-clear to TTC again, 2 weeks before our wedding smile

Got pregnant with DD1 on honeymoon, when I was nearly 32, and she was born exactly 9 months, to the day, after our wedding day smile

Had unprotected sex, just once when DD1 was only 11 weeks old...and got pregnant with DD2 shock I was 32, when she was born.

My SIL was 36 when she married DB. She got pregnant the 2nd month of TTC, and she was 38 when she conceived DN2, only took a 4 months that time.

3 months really is nothing, it's early days when it comes to TTC smile

Had DS at 39. DD at 41. Don't despair!
